OK, we get it: thrillers in non-fiction, too

Chances are likely that if you stop in a bookstore somewhere, James Swanson’s MANHUNT is getting prominent placement. And so, he’s going back to the same Lincoln-area well for his next book:


Author of Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln’s Killers James

Swanson’s book about the month-long pursuit of Jefferson Davis in the

final days of the Confederacy, again to Lisa Gallagher at William

Morrow, in a major deal, for two books, by Richard Abate at ICM.

That would be Jefferson Davis, once the head of the Confederate States of America, of course. And basically, this sounds like it’ll be quite the book once Swanson finishes it.
